Frederick Barbarossa, the German emperor in 1152 wished in vain to bring to submission the towns of northern Italy, which were allies of Pope Alexander III. The picture shows him looking at the mummy of the Emperor Charlemagne, with whom he wanted to identify. Flameng is in the line of historical painters such as J.P. Laurens who sought new, historical themes different from classical mythology.
